ChatGPT is the latest AI tool to make waves across the internet, allowing users to receive near-accurate responses to any prompt they put forth.
Now, reports are emerging that Microsoft will invest $10 billion into OpenAI and implement ChatGPT into its Office Suite, a move that could send rippling effects across organizations that utilize Microsoft.
While this seems like an updated play on the infamous Clippy, the animated virtual paperclip that aimed to help Microsoft users navigate Office Suite, ChatGPT has the power to completely alter everyday work.
Going beyond helping users outlining a letter, ChatGPT could single-handedly take massive amounts of data and compile an organized Excel sheet, or take natural language prompts and create email templates with a few clicks.
However, despite the potential impact that ChatGPT could have on the workplace, it still has several kinks that need to be ironed out before expanding on a global scale.
For instance, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said that there are limitations with ChatGPT’s ability to understand the human language, sometimes offering completely inaccurate answers to prompts.
While it may take years for advanced AI to be effectively integrated into the workplace, companies have already taken the steps to show their commitment to making this a reality. Microsoft has already embraced AI tools in its Office Suite, offering mechanisms like autocompletion and grammar-correcting.
